In an effort to foster collaborative learning and enhance local governance strategies, the City Government of Pasig warmly welcomed a delegation from Muntinlupa City for a Good Practice Exchange (GPE) event held on August 9, 2023.

Led by representatives from Muntinlupa's City Planning and Development Office (CPDO), headed by Acting Head EnP. Alvin F. Veron, the exchange provided an opportunity for both cities to share insights, innovations, and successful practices in various aspects of local governance.

The CPDO of Pasig City took charge of organizing the GPE, under the leadership of City Planning and Development Coordinator EnP. Priscella Mejillano. The event centered around the discussion of Pasig's newly implemented organizational structure and staffing pattern for CPDO, which has played a pivotal role in enhancing the city's planning capabilities. This has contributed to the formulation and effective implementation of crucial development plans, ensuring the city's growth is well-coordinated among departments and offices.


One of the highlights of the exchange was a presentation on CLIMA (City-Wide Land Information Management and Automation), a system recently launched by the Pasig City Government. CLIMA is designed to streamline processes, particularly in regulatory offices, for business and construction permitting through automation.

EnP. Veron of Muntinlupa City also shared their good practices, focusing on their planning and budgeting processes. The exchange allowed for open discussions, enabling participants to inquire about programs, projects, accomplishments, and challenges, fostering a deeper understanding of each other's strategies.

The event also included a visit to the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, particularly the Command Control Center (C3), showcasing Pasig's preparedness in disaster response.

The Good Practice Exchange serves as a benchmarking initiative, offering opportunities for local governments to share their successful practices, which can be adapted to suit the needs of each locality. Through collaborative efforts like the GPE, cities like Pasig continue to strive for excellence in governance, ultimately benefiting their communities.
